2nd Word FINISH!

Ta da! The second words wall hanging is finished. I need another lesson on how to line up my words. 



Again, I didn't realize how wonky bienvenue looks until I viewed the photograph! 
Remember my friend?? I had this piece of batting that was just the right length and width for this wall hanging. I folded it up and placed it on my quilting table. Then, I left the room to answer the phone. When I returned, "my friend" had helped herself to the batting and eaten a section of it!!! I suppose she thought she should investigate what I was touching!





Fortunately, I was able to still use most of my leftover piece with a little creative placement!


















Here are a few photos of the quilting. I used Cindy Needham's Ultimate Background stencils.



I can see that I do better when I step back more often from a project. Good to know that there is a balancing act between taking the time to look and finishing the project!

I've added this wall hanging to the Christmas decorations in the house. The recipient is here for the holidays and has commented positively about it; but, hasn't looked at the label. The label check will happen Christmas morning. What a nice surprise is in store for that person! 






Look what came in the mail!!! Luann Fisher posted on her Let's Create Today blog about this hat. My favorite color is red and I said that if I lived in her neighborhood, I'd be on her doorstep! By the way, check out Luann's blog. She accomplishes loads and her dyed fabrics make me drool!!! Thank you Luann for the hat!!








I have three more projects that I would like to make before Christmas. Actually, I need to finish before December 23. The reason isn't quilt related; but, it will affect my quilting!

Here is the fabric for two of the projects.


Please keep your fingers crossed for me and check back at the end of the week to see if I was successful!! :)

  1. My goodness, Terry, you are probably sewing rather than reading comments, but my fingers are crossed!

    I can't believe the dog ate your "homework," lol. But it turned out great anyway! Merry Christmas!

  3. You are most welcome!

    Do talk to your Vet about the friend's consumption of batting. Just to be aware of any possible complications.

    1. Luann, well, she should avoid it. . .after all, it has no food value! She is okay as long as she doesn't make it a regular practice!--Terry

  4. The dog ate it was a favorite excuse my brother used at school. I'm glad you still had enough batting! Love your work and so glad I get to see it close up.
